The Caswell Franklyn Column – Did Former Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin Receive Justice in the Courts?

Caswell Franklyn, Head of Unity Workers Union

Former Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin, applied to the law courts to challenge the decision that effectively prematurely retired him from the Public Service. The decisions of both the High Court and Court of Appeal have clearly shown me that I only have a miniscule understanding of the law.

Based on my knowledge of public service rules and some court decisions that interpreted those rules, I was firmly of the view and predicted that Dottin would have prevailed. I am now reminded that a little learning is a dangerous thing. Nonetheless, I would still like to share the little learning that caused me to come to my erroneous conclusion.

Firstly, Mr. Dottin was sent on something called administrative leave that does not exist in the Public Service of Barbados, and I must add that the defence conceded that point. To my mind, the act of sending him on administrative leave would therefore have been a nullity and he should have been allowed back to his post. And that should have been the end of the matter but heads far wiser than mine thought differently.

From reading the decision of the Court of Appeal, it would appear that the Police Service Commission (PSC) came to the conclusion on its own initiative that Mr. Dottin should have been retired in the public interest, in accordance with section 11(1) of the Pensions Act. I must confess that I did not think that section 11(1) applied to him. But what do I know? Section 11(1) states:

Subject to section 13B, the Governor-General may require an officer to whom this section applies to retire from the service of the Crown in a civil capacity

(a) at any time after he attains the age of 55 years;

(b) in special cases at any time after he attains the age of 50 years.

Even though the PSC has the right to recommend to the Governor-General that a public officer should be retired in accordance with that section, there is a procedure, in the Service Commissions (Public Service) Regulations, 1978 to follow. I have been unable to find any hint in the appeal court’s decision that this procedure was even considered. Regulation 19 (1) and (2) state:

19. (1) Where it appears to a Permanent Secretary or Head of Department that, pursuant paragraph ( b) of section 11(1) of the Pensions Act, Cap. 25 an officer in his Ministry or Department who has attained the age of fifty years but not fifty-five years ought to be required to retire from the public service, that Permanent Secretary or Head of Department shall advise the officer accordingly and report the matter, together with his reasons therefor, to the Chief Personnel Officer for the consideration of the Commission, and the Commission shall recommend to the Governor-General whether or not the officer ought to be required to retire.

19 (2) An officer referred to in paragraph (1) shall be afforded an opportunity of submitting in writing to the Commission any representations he wishes to make regarding any advice given to him by the Permanent Secretary or Head of Department pursuant to paragraph (1).

I was therefore of the opinion that the PSC wrongly relied on section 11(1) even if it were applicable, since they had no authority to commence proceedings under that section. In this case, only the Permanent Secretary could have initiated that process. Mind you, I was not only relying on my limited knowledge to arrive at that position. I relied on the learning of Madam Justice Elneth Kentish who said, in the case 979/1996 Judy Lloyd v Attorney General:

“This case serves as a timely reminder to all vested with authority to make decisions under a power or duty conferred or imposed by law that where proceedings are stipulated as part of the decision making process, these procedures must be strictly adhered to …”

I must admit that the two decisions in the Dottin case are hard pills for me to swallow, but whether I like it or not, I must acknowledge that the Court of Appeal is always right in law, unless the Caribbean Court of Justice says otherwise

    That is my point, neither section 11(1) of the Pensions Act nor regulation 19 of the Public Service Regulations would have applied to Dottin. Section 13B of the Pensions Act might have been more appropriate. But in any event, the service commissions do not initiate action and report it to themselves and then advise the Governor-General.

    I have a soft copy of the judgment if you need one.

  • Jeff,
    May I humbly suggest a solution that could offer simplicity to what is an unnecessary legal tangle: that the commissioner of police be on a term contract (three or five years). In that case, when the contract reaches expiration, unless it is renewed, then that is it.
    And, as you know much better than I do, a basic principle of contract law is the doctrine of the four corners: unless the conditions are within the written contract then it does not apply. Simple; no political interference, if not they pay for breaching the agreement. No more this is how we do things in Barbados nonsense. It is called the rule of law.

    The long dark night of the BLP has come to an end. May Barbados never see the likes of it again. By the way, I want to encourage other Barbadians who were similarly targetted by the BLP because they were Dems or were otherwise affiliated, to tell their story. Barbadians must get the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It must no longer be kept under the carpet. So Mia Mottley is calling for justice for BLP supporters. Why didn’t she call for justice for me, when I was editor of the Advocate and was being persecuted almost on a daily basis by the BLP?

    The full story of how I was treated by the Barbados Labour Party has not been told but I will do so one day and Barbadians will see what an authoritarian government we had. How we were on the brink of dictatorship because when the press is attacked and bullied into submission, freedom is always in danger.

    Dottin was pitched fork into the seat of Commissioner of Police by MIA AMOR MOTTLEY. He was made COP over and above more experienced and better qualified and more senior policemen. That all happen because it is said that he was a BLP operative.

    From that time on there were ructions in Police Force. Bad blood from the top of the Force to the bottom was created. All of this happen right after the BLP more or less hounded Watson out of the Police Force because they saw him as sympathetic to the Democratic Labour Party. But truth be told he refused to do a lot of dirty deeds which Barbados Labour Party Govt. wanted done. But being the scoundrels they were and still is the BLP put their man in there to do. TYRANTS.

    During his time a spying division was set up within the Police force. It had nothing to do with National Security, it tapped the phones of members of the Democratic Labour Party and the contents of their phone calls and the people they had contact with were duly passed on , not to the Govt. of the day, but to the Barbados Labour Party.

    The division was set up to give one political party a heads up on the daily activity of the other political party. Now tell sensible people how such could be right.

    Now to quote Reudon Eversley,

    “When all the crap was happening, I spoke to a certain well-connected BLP person and he told me they would have a problem with me because David Thompson is my friend. Imagine that? In fact, he even went as far as to tell me that I was on the phone in my office talking to David Thompson two days before, which was true. Talking to David Thompson was obviously a sin in the BLP’s books. Now, the person could have only found out this information from two sources: either the BLP had someone in the Advocate’s newsroom who was spying on me and reporting back to them or they had my telephone bugged.”

    Note the part where a well connected BLP person could tell him he was on the phone with DAVID THOMPSON a few days earlier. The police spying division was at work!!!

    DAVID said many times that people could tell him about the contents of his telephone conversations.

    AND THIS IS THE POLITICAL PARTY(BLP) WHICH BU WANTS TO BE ELECTED IN NUMBERS SUFFICIENT TO FORM THE NEXT GOVT. OF BARBADOS?

    Some ‘alternative facts’.

    Darwin Dottin is a corrupt egotistical maniac who ran the RBPF as his personal fiefdom.

    Darwin Dottin did more damage to the functionality and morale of the RBPF than any other COP in living memory including the idiot Durant.

    Darwin Dottin projected a RBPF image to citizens that compromised the co-operation that the BRPF has always desperately needed to solve crime. This is more than just a ‘PR’ problem, it is a function problem.

    Darwin Dottin used police wire-tapping equipment to legally but immorally monitor honest citizens celphone communications for political and other corrupt purposes.

    Past PSC’s were unable to sanction Darwin Dottin’s actions.

    In Bim, it is practically impossible to sanction any civil servant.

    Eventually, the PSC with new chairman found a way to get rid of Darwin Dottin and, thereby, do this country a great service.

    Darwin Dottin will never suffer for his behaviour, he will retire with full pension. Hopefully his legal fees will hurt him just a little.

    This is what Barbados has come to. For decades the tail has been wagging the dog and for the last eight years there has been no dog.

    There will be no civil service accountability or transparency under Fumble’s Fools. We should be thankful for boards as strong as the current PSC who are willing to stand up for the rest of us who have no voice. If we had 20 more to manage the rest of the civil service, maybe we could get this country back on track. Politicians will certainly not do it.

    This article will accomplish a few things.

    a.It brings to the fore the Illegal Issue of Wire Tapping and more importantly that Dottin who was the Master Mind of the Scheme and the ultimate recipient of the data that was mined for the specific benefit of the Barbados Labour Party.

    Sorry, that was incorrectly stated, mined for the benefit of a specific faction of the barbados Labour Party AND NOT FOR ITS LEADER OWEN ARTHUR who was also being wiretapped.

    b.No one, including the very amicable Mr Dottin should ever be allowed to tap lawbiding citizens of Barbados for ANY REASON WHATEVER.

    It should be a crime that is prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In the same fashion like how the same RBPF sought to apprehend Barry Jack and Woggy under the guise of having them prosecuted by the Law Courts of Barbados but decidint that that was a waste of time and deciding to kill them in Jackson

    Dottin and his master or is that mistress, no I spoke correctly the first time, his master, should both be locked up for flagrantly breaking the law in no less criminal a manner that breaking and entering a house and teifing contents and bugging phone lines and searching for things that are no longer here.

    c.All the so called men with balls and women with big pudendas are noticably missing from this article.

    Which is understandable because they fear the coming of Mugabe who will, by using her Insider know conclusively who would have spoken against her in this forum and will not be forgiving in her pursuit of those who spoke of her illegal acts.

    d.Note is made that Angela Sealy and Carson C Cadogan, both servants of the Imp and demon Fumbles and his cohort, ARE INCREDIBLY speaking the truth on this matter.

    e.Note is made of Frustrated Businessman who, protected as he is by (a) the Hand of GOD and (b) his millions of dollars, WILL NOT BE TOUCHED IN EITHER PURGE by the DLP or the BLP.

    Be careful with your pronouncements FB because, if your “caped hero” alter ego is known, it will be shared by those whom you least expect to do such dastardly deeds.

    You can be assured Frustrated Businessman that certain persons will “suck pooch” based on the size of the reward that is proffered them.

    Most people seem to miss the point in my article. I hold no brief for Dottin but I feel that he should have been dealt with fairly, and in my humble opinion, he was not. The court wasted time dealing with interlocutory matters and never got into his substantive case. The delay was unconscionable.

    If there were allegations against him, he should have been given an opportunity to respond to them, rather than use a procedure that is not known to the laws of Barbados. A murdered who publicly killed his victim is still given a trial. Why not Dottin? He did not kill anyone as far as I know.

    Frustrated and others are happy that the Police Service Commission broke the law to deal with Dottin. I hope they are similarly happy when some arm of the State do likewise to them or somebody that they care about.

    With all the allegations against him, why did the State not prosecute? And don’t tell me that it had anything to do with national security. They were unable to convince the judge of that using secret documents that were filed in court and not made public.

    By the way, this article must have hit a nerve judging from the fact that they brought out what they consider to be a big gun, in the form of Carson Cadogan. They should realise that this big gun does not shoot straight.

The BLP has this nasty habit of putting people in high places who are loyal not to the country but to them and who would be willing to do the dandiest things that they asked them to do.

  • I don’t want to hi-jack this topic by going off track, but sometimes I find it necessary to respond when I read nonsense.

    Another resident yard-fowl wrote: “The BLP has this nasty habit of putting people in high places who are loyal not to the country but to them and who would be willing to do the dandiest things that they asked them to do.”

    This inept DLP administration appointed Dr. Delisle Worrell as Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados. Dr. Worrell’s tenure as Governor began with him being loyal to the DLP, which was evidenced by the fact that he manipulated the economic and unemployment statistics to reflect the views of the government.

    Interestingly, the IMF reached a similar conclusion.

    The IMF’s Press release No 15/342 of July 17, 2015 reported the following:

    “Directors noted the INCONSISTENCY in GDP data, and encouraged the authorities to quickly resolve these issues, with help from IMF technical experts.”

    If you were to read page 3 of the IMF’s August 2016 Selected Issues paper on Barbados:

    “MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS and INCONSISTENCIES in Barbados’ data CONTINUE to HAMPER and IMPEDE UNDERSTANDING of economic developments since the global financial crisis.”

    “Measurement issues and DATA INCONSISTENCIES hamper understanding and assessment of the economic shock from the global financial crisis.”

    Bases on Worrell’s previous “antecedents,” it was clear “The DLP also has this nasty habit of putting people in high places who are loyal not to the country but to them,” because by manipulating the economic statistics, he was “willing to do the dandiest things that they asked them to do.”

    However, in his June 2016 CBB report, Dr. Worrell assessment of the economy reflected the views of the local, regional and international economists, rating and financial agencies. This indicated he and Sinckler were reading from different “hymn sheets.” Dr. Worrell was at “logger heads” with Sinckler, the CBB’s Board and this inept DLP administration, perhaps because he switched his LOYALTY to the COUNTRY.

    Since he decided to break the status quo, Dr. Worrell is now REFERRED to as the FORMER Governor of the Central Bank.

    I will post in brief what was said previously

    a.It is noted that Angela Sealy & Carson Cadogan posted clear truths here which ironically speak to the same practice that their faction is now conducting against their perceived enemies

    b.It is noted that Frustrated Business Man also posted and since he is posting under the protection of GOD and is a multimillionaire, can be assured that he will be protected from the Mugabe purge if she should be so lucky to be appointed

    c.As amiable a chap as Darnley Dotting is the fact remains that the actions that were conducted under his tenure were crimes against the citizens of Barbados.

    The incursion into people’s private business is no less criminal than the breaking and entering that many less fortunate persons in the landscape of Barbados are incarcerated for and both he and the party whom he would have collected that information for ARE THEREFORE CRIMINALS

    Caswell normally presents specific topics that ate reasoned soundly but, if I find the notorious Jack the Ripper and it is solely because i would have been part of a neighbourhood outreach should one then say “look we were only asking for chocolates when we say the bodies in his dining room so leh we let Jack the Ripper loose?”

    I think not but Caswell may rely on the process through which such information was secured as a defence for Jack the Ripper.

    On the one hand you would seek to champion the underdogs and the oppressed under the union’s chapeau but on the other hand, while championing process where a criminal is ousted for crimes committed, rushing to the aide of Lucifer with a defense that the “Perfect will of GOD must be flawed if his creation, once the morning star fell,, should mean that such evil should be forgiven, cause Almighty GOD made the fallen party.

    The problem is that when we personal friends get caught in the piss all of us commend the health values of golden showers.

    Much like clitoris removal using one’s teeth is now being swept under the carpet cause “we going with the useless Mugabe whose 25 year tenure has been nothing but a waste foop, I do hope that Caswell is not subliminally suggesting that DD’s sins be forgiven.

  • Those are the Facts which no blp operative can deny.a 700million dollar debt payable every first of the year and which has become a hangmans noose around the neck of every taxpayer struggling to pay their household bills.
    The blp would want all of barbados to belive that the years spent under their reign were plentiful but most barbadians know that there was plenty debt piled upon this country and its people under the blp reign

    And the stupid government led by Fruendel the Fraud, kept Nurse there even longer…idiots, kept the useless DPP Leacock even tried to keep him there another 9 years…idiots…

    How much is Apes Hill costing NIS pensioners….how much did the Maloney, Bjerkham, Cow and Bizzy 4 seasons and housing scams cost taxpayers….idiots….how much did the BWA building scam cost taxpayers…when the money would have been better used to upgrade the sewage system and repair mains to bring potable water to the whole island……idiots

    …..how much is the Transport Board liabilities scam with the supreme court choked with personal injury cases thanks to Peter Harris costing that entity in equity. …idiots.

    an excerpt(as told by a former prisoner)

    “”Lt. Col. John Nurse had been a desk jockey at the tiny Barbadian Defence Force before taking up the job of Superintendent at Glendairy . Dazzled by delusions of his own military greatness, his main concern was walking around like Idi Amin with his Red cap band on. He was usually flanked by a couple of hefty guards. “”

    On one occasion Nurse held convocation in the Mess Hall. Every inmate, except those on H&L, the wing where all the men on Death Row were kept, had to be there. He made a speech about how the prison worked and how we should behave and then stated that we as prisoners did not have any rights. We inmates were going to take everything that was coming to us. We all knew it , but I couldn’t believe he was actually saying it out loud and admitting it.””

    OF NOTE:

    He was a desk soldier.

    He like to walk around with “”….his RED cap band on””(BLP red)

    Inmates have no rights , said he!!!

    “…an officer in his Ministry or Department who has attained the age of fifty years but NOT fifty-five years (my emphasis)

    @ Caswell, would this have applied to Dottin? Was he not already past 55 at the material time? I confess that I have not yet read the judgment, but I have never heard of “administrative leave” either which sounds punitive.

    Caswell Franklyn April 9, 2017 at 11:14 AM #

    Jeff

    That is my point, neither section 11(1) of the Pensions Act nor regulation 19 of the Public Service Regulations would have applied to Dottin. Section 13B of the Pensions Act might have been more appropriate. But in any event, the service commissions do not initiate action and report it to themselves and then advise the Governor-General.

    I have a soft copy of the judgment if you need one.

    Have you read the Judgment yet? I do not believe that we should allow Mr Franklyn’s points of view disagreeing with the decision of the court of appeal to be silently swept under the carpet. I await your views on this matter which elicited lots of controversial comment on BU when Mr Dottin was removed from office purportedly by way of ‘administrative leave’ a term which from the comments of legal layman Mr Franklyn and now legal luminary like you appears not to exist in the circumstances.

  • What is your point Mr Skeete?

    Are you suggesting that Court decisions in Barbados have a history of conforming with what is written …or not written, in the Law?
    ha ha ha …

    Boss, our court ‘decisions’ consists of a number of pages of legal mumbo jumbo – usually quoting arbitrary selected shiite cases from equally corrupt jurisdictions – and mostly consisting of so much verbosity and superfluity, that NOBODY (including the damn lawyers, clients, prosecution or press) ….except for Caswell (who is just strange that way) and Jeff (because he is a teacher) bothers to read it.

    Then they give the ‘judgement’ – which is what happens to be politically expedient at the time and usually bears NO relationship or logical follow-up from the preamble…. to the written ‘law’ or to common sense.

    The ‘judgements’ of our courts can easily be predicted by any astute political / masonic / racial / social observer …… in that order….

    It is too huge a thing and wunna brains collectively would not constitute the substance to make one match head to light on a match box.

    All else is purely circumstantial shyte and speculative and most importantly *******.

    They are unsure of your allegiances so you need to be careful notwithstanding the sexual harassment issues.

    You are talking too much and need to shut your blasted mouth lest you and your significant other get immolated.

    @ All

    This “Dottin matter” and “the Mugabe Pretender to the Throne collusion” constitutes a pattern of engagement of small minded people that come and seek our votes AND WHOM WE ELECT TO FVUC# US for 5 years.

    We Bajans elect a thief and then expect him to become an Honourable Citizen purely because you address him thusly in the House of Assembly.

    Both sides are scum and until we get back to seeking men and women with character and backbones we will be screwed by them both.
